responsibilities is asking tough questions of science is often in cheerleading. those who ask a lot of tough questions of lot of headlines are that science events is but not until later when people start to ask questions about what happened in the long ago so it is important to ask the questions of ethics but also not demonize science in the process. of this is portraying the people behind the science in sometimes well-intentioned scientists accidentally have negative effects. i thought it is important to present the issues but not a scare people so much of the story is about african-americans who have a history of being afraid to go to the doctor because the history of being used in research. i didn't want to make that problem worse. site and this is scary to people rather nanotechnology that we don't understand or cloning a or it is easy to scare people. how do i balance all of these things? asking the tough questions but making clear the science says good. i don't want to scare people away from going to the doctor. people often come to my even ince that i am supposed to go to the doctor n

of sciences released a review almost 150 days ago on the blm's controversial wild horse program saying, quote: continuation of business as usual practices will be expensive and unproductive for blm and the public it serves, end quote. does the interior department and blm intend to embrace the reforms in the report, and if so, when? or would they not? >> well, the question about how we effectively manage the wild horse and burro program is one that people feel very passionate about on both sides of issue. it's difficult. there isn't a secretary of interior that i've talked to -- and i've talked to them going back to the 1970s -- that hasn't been aware of this issue and struggled with this issue. so i want to start by saying it's not easy. it's actually quite difficult. the national academy of sciences gave us the report. it was very helpful in a couple of ways. one is it validated what our land managers know which is horses are really good at reproducing. 0% a year -- 20% a year. that that means the herd doubles in size every three and a half years. that's a lot of horses, and providing they a
in the essential pillars of economic growth like education, work force readiness, science, research, and innovation. i believe there are significant savings that can be achieved in our health care system without comprising the quality of care and in fact, while improving the quality of care. and without slashing benefits that are senior -- our seniors have worked so hard for and earned. have estimated that we could save $1 trillion per year without affecting health care outcome. and by enacting smart, targeted health care delivery reform. the institute of medicine estimated this number could be $7 50 billion. no matter what the exact figure or proposal these are impressive savings that trenten our nation's health care system without shifting cost and burdens to senior and our states. in addition, these reforms have the added benefit of improving quality outcomes within the health care system. so before we continue to obsessively put benefit cut on the table, i would hope that we can begin a dialogue about finding solutions that produce health care cost savings. and i'm confident if both parties in
kind, that is all occurring at the intersections of markets and sciences. and the united states, because of this entrepreneurial system, because of what it teaches in the schools, specially universities, because of the way kids grow up in the system, to look at opportunity, not a problem. to go at the answer, to work out the how to make the path were green,et more how to reduce the human footprint on the planet -- these are the things that make united states the attractive part of the work to invest in, because you can do it here. 70% of all the dow r&d in united states is done in the united states. right now the united states is unbeatable for that. second, the value added on resources, how is putting its money where its mouth is. we're putting 5 billion dollars against the national gas advantage that was talked about. we are putting thousands of jobs at work. this will create up to 2 million jobs in the next several years. a lot of that will be exporting brains and of course a little bit of brawn. >> thank you, andrew.

is quoted in "the christian science monitor" as saying it is a raw deal for the young. he said premiums will go up for young people to subsidize the elders. guest: i think his facts are wrong. if you look at the numbers that are coming out, they are actually lower than anticipated. again, if you make $17,000 a year, you are a young person, you can find a plan for $15 a month, $40 a month, and potentially less. if you make $25,000 a year, you might find a plan for $75 a month, $100 a month. the uninsured single, young adult population would qualify for insurance under $50 a month. fail to those studies take into account the subsidies which disproportionately help people at the lower end of the economic spectrum, which happens to be a lot of young people. host: well, the penalties for the uninsured in 2014 -- next year it will be $95 per adult, or one percent of family income, whichever is lower. 3 hundred $25 per adult, in2% of income, and finally 2016, 600 $95 per adult, or 2.5% of family income. the think those are fair? guest: it is important to have a system where everybody pays in.
